The Government of Finland at a plenary meeting adopted a resolution on the North Atlantic Treaty, completing the process of the country’s accession to NATO. This was reported on the official website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic.
“The government decree completes the process of joining the alliance at the national level, and the North Atlantic Treaty is being integrated into Finnish law,” the foreign ministry said in a statement. On April 4, Finland officially became a member of NATO. U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken took part in Helsinki’s formal entry into the bloc, accepting accession protocols ratified by other members of the alliance. Finland applied to join the alliance in May 2022 together with Sweden. Stockholm has not yet been able to become a member of the alliance due to contradictions with Turkey after the burning of the Koran.
